-Avoid paying with plastic. Planning to pay for gas by credit card is definitely not a wise financial move; gas cards typically have higher than average interest rates than other credit cards. If you must use credit, use a general purpose card with affordable terms and make a plan for a quick pay off.
-Create a budget. If you know you will be paying more for gas, seek other areas to cut expenses. For example, consider packing food for the drive rather than purchasing it along the way. Skip the costly premium gas unless your car actually needs it; it will not get you better mileage or more power.
-Plan out your trip. Gas prices vary quite a bit from one city to another. Plan out your route so that you don’t get stuck paying extra for gas because you have no choice. Visit GasPriceWatch.com to compare gas prices.
-Drive sensibly. Excessive speed and a lot of accelerating and breaking can waste gas. Driving sensibly can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent when driving at highway speeds and by 5 percent when cruising around town. Using your cruise control is one good way to regulate your speed.
-Look into alternatives. Research other methods of transportation including traveling by bus or train. Not only could you save some money, but the trip could be considered an adventure in and of itself.
